Hair Loss Q & A

by Jean-Denis Boucher, MD, FAAD

What causes hair loss?

Hair loss can have numerous causes. You may experience full or partial hair loss on your scalp. Factors that influence hair loss may include:

  • Heredity
  • Environment
  • Use of certain products
  • Improper hair care

Dr. Boucher considers your medical and family history, as well as your diet and hair care regimen, to pinpoint the cause of your hair loss. He and his experienced staff work to develop a comprehensive, customized treatment plan to address hair loss and help you achieve results.

What treatment options are available for hair loss?

Dr. Boucher offers two highly effective hair loss treatment options: platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment and Capillus laser cap treatments.

Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Boucher can discuss the most effective treatment options during your consultation. His goal is to help you find the right solution to improve hair follicle health and grow strong, healthy hair.

What is involved in PRP hair loss treatments?

PRP injectable treatments use platelet-rich plasma from your blood. He uses a centrifuge to separate the plasma substance from the rest of your blood. After he prepares the platelet-rich solution, he re-injects the PRP into your scalp to stimulate the growth of new hair.

Treatments with PRP are fast and effective at stimulating new hair growth without any side effects or recovery time. Depending on your needs, more than one treatment may be necessary to achieve optimal results.

How does Capillus laser therapy work?

Capillus treatments use a cap that features hair-growth stimulating lasers. You wear the cap for 30 minutes, 3-4 times a week.

The laser treatment works for hair loss in both men and women by targeting hair follicles in the scalp to regrow new, healthy hair. Treatment improves the health of your follicles, so you can expect long-lasting results.

Capillus cap treatments are an affordable, in-home treatment that Dr. Boucher may recommend for treating thinning hair and hereditary baldness.
